NAEP’s Technology and Engineering Literacy Assessment a New Approach to Assessment
The Alliance for Excellent Education is joining with the National Assessment Governing Board (NAGB) to host a webinar on National Assessment of Educational Progress’s (NAEP’s) new Technology and Engineering Literacy (TEL) assessment.
The TEL assessment is a new part of NAEP and reflects a new approach to assessment. This webinar will share information about the assessment—its genesis, the types of information in the report, and potential use of that information. In addition, the webinar will highlight the TEL assessment’s departure from typical assessment designs used in NAEP; it relies on scenario-based problem sets that test students through their interaction with multimedia tasks.

Envision Education believes that students are ready to succeed in college and in career when they have developed the ability to think like a historian or mathematician, the ability to know and use the leadership skills necessary in college and life, and the ability to reflect about one’s personal journey as a learner. In short, Envision students are able in knowing, doing, and reflecting.
The College Success Portfolio Defense is our capstone activity that pulls knowing, doing, and reflecting into one place, into one moment. It is the final inquiry, the final essential question, the final exhibition – a culmination of four years of work. Akin to a dissertation defense or professional presentation, students stand before a panel of their peers, adult educators, and mentors to demonstrate the depth of their knowing, doing, and reflecting as evidenced by their academic work and self-reflection.
Come and spend some time with Envision students and staff at a Defense Design Studio.
